Custom Sculpture, Statues, Mannequins, Movie Prop Displays and Restoraion

Movie Inspired Living

At Tom Spina Designs, Inc. we draw inspiration every day from our shared passion for our favorite films.

Our artists have a wide range of talents and can offer everything from portrait sculpture, busts & masks to custom fabricated mannequins, statues, signs, furniture, decor and theme props of all sizes or even entire themed rooms and home theaters.  

From wax museum style mannequins, to bronze busts, to giant carved foam characters or environments, TSD can help bring your vision to life.

We have also done groundbreaking work preserving and restoring television & film props and foam latex costumes and masks.  Our unique techniques make use of archival quality materials and our signature balanced approach to restoration maintains the integrity of these important artifacts of film history, making us the go-to source for those looking for conservators for their precious collections. 

For the collector looking to show off their otherwise difficult to display items like original movie props, film wardrobe and or masks, look no further. TSD can design and create themed or museum style displays and mannequins that will make your pieces of film history shine!

The company made internet waves with our infamous Han Solo in Carbonite Desk and has become known for our authentic recreation of Star Wars characters for Volkswagen's 2012 Super Bowl commercial as well as our work with Walt Disney Imagineering, Sideshow Collectibles, Six Flags and others.

Best of all, our New York studio's custom sculpture and display services are available to everyone. We create our artwork for businesses, home theaters, museums, restaurants, themed attractions, haunts and even private collectors.

And don't miss our STORE where you’ll find flocked styrofoam display heads, unique display heads, busts and helmet stands, some of our most asked about theme props, characters and furniture!
